Life list: Experience a perfect day, trusting God in the “already” and in the “not yet.” .

Imagine a day like no other.
Imagine a day that goes the way you’ve dreamed about.
Imagine a perfect day.
Perfection.  What is it? We each have a different idea of perfection.

The thing is . . . along the way we form illusions . . . thinking life has to be a certain way in order to be perfect.  But.  When we understand life is beyond self,  aware of the presence of God, at peace regardless of our circumstances, believing God is not only present, but at work with a plan to bring all things together for good, then, we will experience the perfect day.

It is understanding there is the “already” and the “not yet” of God.


  • And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ
  • [right up to the time of His return],
  • developing [that good work]
  • and
  • perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.
  • (Philippians 1:6, Amplified)

And.  The work of God is beyond comprehension ~Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:27)~What is impossible with men is possible with God (Luke 18:27). 

When we interpet perfection through the presence of God, we choose to trust, surrendering it all, convinced God is “already” at work,  shifting the details of the universe to bring about all the details of the future, the “not yet,” into place.  But.

When we take matters into our own hands, living in our own strength and power, going our own way, we are constantly unsettled, wanting and wishing for the perfect day, missing out on the  gift of the “already” and the hope of the “not yet” of God.

Put it on your life list:  Experience a perfect day, trusting God in the “already” and the “not yet” of life.

  1. Acknowledge the presence of the Spirit of God in the “already” and the “not yet” as you go through the day.
  2. Focus on what God has promised: All things are possible in the “already” and the “not yet.”
  3. Breathe the prayer during the day:  I surrender everything, trusting You in the “already” and in the “not yet.”
  4. Live in supernatural peace, believing God is “already” at work, shifting every detail to bring all things together for good in the “not yet” of life.

Learning to Kickstart the day with anticipation of the “already” and “not yet” of God.
